a/n: Okay, big author’s note here.
This fic is based off things I have experienced as a person with ADHD. Not all ADHD is the same - there are a handful of subcategories, but Dan’s ADHD in this fic reflects mine - mostly inattentive but frequently showing hyperactivity and impulsitivity. Another common ‘side affect,’ if you will, of ADHD are really intense emotions like you’ll see in this (especially because it is really, really easy to get upset about the symptoms of ADHD sometimes).
Dan’s thoughts are in italics. I tried to make them as realistic as possible for someone with ADHD but it’s difficult to explain!
if you have any questions please ask!!!! enjoy.

This was the thought Dan repeated to himself over and over, clenching his hands on the sides of his desk to keep them still. One foot covered the other, legs twisted a bit, and all his materials were organized neatly on his desk so he wouldn’t want to fix them.
